Hybrids, 511 Gallery, New York
30 November 2006 – 6 January 2007
511 GALLERY is pleased to present new photographs by Susanne Ramsenthaler. The series, Hybrids, explores the artist’s interest in liminality, particularly matter that hovers on the fine line between attraction and repulsion.
Ramsenthaler uses light and color in such a way as to constantly reference the fragility and ephemerality of these hybrid forms.
Hybrids examines in visual terms, an encounter with jellyfish – “medusa” is the name given to their adult shape – and our ambivalent reaction to them. At the same time, these new species make a visceral connection to the more primitive functions of our own bodies and species.
